Describe. The Giveaway. :: N.D. Wilson’s Notes From The Tilt-a-Whirl
“Describe a place. (That’s not hard.) Then a thing. (Harder, but still doable.) But then you have to describe a person. A living person. In one paragraph.” – This blog.
Miguel Solis is a bundle of energy, muscle, and grins. Along with his older siblings – Smack-Matt and the Two Beans – he is related to us by a love of God that surpasses even his affinity for his Ecuadorian father’s salsa. (Another thing we have in common.) His love for Jesus and love for the people that look down to him prove he’s taller than his stature might suggest.
The challenge of the artist is to take a black, watery substance (essentially nothing,) and make life. To take words (essentially everything,) and make people. Or define them. Fun stuff. :-)
So I’ve got a challenge for you. Take one paragraph and, as best you can, stuff a person into it. In return, you could win N.D. Wilson’s Notes From The Tilt-a-Whirl Film. >> notesfromthetiltawhirl.com
An Idea Film. A Bookumentary.
A cinematic treatment of a worldview. A poet live in concert. A motion picture sermon. VH1 Storytellers meets Planet Earth. In this unusual but fascinating film sequence, best-selling author N.D. Wilson gives an emotional and intellectual tour of life in this world and the final chapter that is death. Everything before and after and in between is a series of miracles–some of which are encouraging, others disturbing and uncomfortable. (Description from the Notes From the Tilt-a-Whirl site.)
